An Earnings-Generation Model for Canadian Men Structural Estimates
AbstractThis paper reports the results of the estimation of a five-equation earnings model for Canadian men. The data set is a large cross-section of Canadians that includes extensive family background variables. Family socio-economic background is found to have a marked systematic influence on the earning process, supporting Leibowitz' home-time hypothesis. The role of mother's and father's backgrounds appear quite different over a son's life-cycle. Direct immigrant and language effects are also found.
